Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

Its inevitable demise was long rumored, but Bump & Grind managed to hang on until the very end of 2009, when a "closed indefinitely" sign appeared on the door of 439 East 17th Avenue and this message on its voicemail: "We are closed, and quite possibly forever. Right now it's up in the air. We will let you know as soon as we know."

Say it ain't so! No more Petticoat Bruncheon? This town won't be the same without sassy drag queens serving breakfast.

And Bump & Grind wasn't the only casualty of 2009. We'll post December's Restaurant Roll Call here later this morning.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
